Jamaica has received from the Green Climate Fund (GCF) for capacity-building support to the tune of US$300,000 for the Climate Change Division, acting as national designed authority (NDA) with the fund.

The new boss at the division, Una May Gordon, made the revelation in an interview with The Gleaner earlier this week.

“We are going to get some support to ready ourselves so we can assist the many and varied stakeholders to make the right decisions for finance,” she said.

“We should be hearing from them (GCF) very soon in terms of the grant agreement and so on,” she added.

More than a year ago, Jamaica was named NDA with the fund, which is tasked to “limit or reduce greenhouse gas emissions in developing countries and to help vulnerable societies adapt to the unavoidable impacts of climate change”, according to information from its website.
